Try posting this on the commercial forum here. Ray Alcorn specializes in park buying (as does Ernest Tew at this forum). Analyzing commercial property is a much different animal. Ray Alcorn has a book for sale at this site that is a MUST if you intend to buy a park. His due diligence checklist will keep you in the drivers seat. His book will walk you through what questions you need to ask, who you need to ask, and how to get the numbers and analyze them. I highly recommend that you use this education to protect yourself and not throw caution to the wind. There are a great deal of factors to consider when buying commercial property. Valueing the park, the store, the houses etc. will need seperate considerations.

Best Wishes,
